Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor seals Rangers return

Scotland goalkeeper Allan McGregor has completed his return to Rangers on a two-year contract.
The 36-year-old was out of contract at Hull and knocked back Tigers boss Nigel Adkins' offer of a new deal.
Instead, McGregor has decided to return to Rangers six years after quitting in the wake of the club's financial meltdown.
"When the chance came, it was an absolute no-brainer, so I'm buzzing to be back," he told Rangers TV.
"I started training here when I was 12 years old and used to come through the main stand maybe twice a week. To be back is incredible."
McGregor becomes Steven Gerrard's second signing since taking over as Rangers boss, following the capture of midfielder Scott Arfield from Burnley earlier this week.
The 38-cap Scotland international won three league titles, a hat-trick of Scottish Cups and five League Cup titles during his first Rangers stint.
After he joined the exodus of big-name stars from the club in 2012, he spent a year with Besiktas in Turkey before joining Hull and racked up almost 150 appearances for the Tigers.
The ambition for Rangers next season will be to close the gap to Celtic and key to that will be improving the club's home form.
The Gers lost seven times at Ibrox in the Ladbrokes Premiership this season as they stumbled to third place and McGregor acknowledges that they must adapt to playing in front of their home fans.
"We need to make this place a fortress where nobody wants to come," he said. "We need to win games, it doesn't matter who you're playing, every game is an opportunity for three points.
"If you keep doing that, as we've seen before, that's what wins you titles."
